I already knew that I got a 167 on the LSATs — now I know why. My corrected answers and detailed score information arrived at my parents’ house in Newington today. My dad e-mailed me a full report.
The Logic Games section was by far my weakest, as I knew all along. But those foolish games didn’t totally tear me apart — I actually did a little better than I expected. I had estimated immediately afterward that “at best, I got maybe 12 out of the 24 questions right,” but in reality, I got 13 right. So I was 13-for-24 on that section, and (here’s the good part) 72-for-76 on other three sections, for a total of 85-for-100 overall, which translates to a 167, the 96th percentile.
Now, on to more important things: football! USC’s game against Stanford doesn’t kick off until 4:00 PM Pacific time, but the Trojans’ Rose Bowl hopes are very much on the line right now as Oregon battles Washington State. Even if USC wins all three of our remaining games, we need Washington State to lose two of their final three in order for us to win the Pac-10. So far, so good: the Ducks just took a 14-10 lead. Go, Oregon, go!
UPDATE, 1:56 PM: Dammit, Washington State just took back the lead, 17-14. Well, it’s early yet. (4:37 left in the first half.) C’mon, Ducks! Quack! Quack! Quack!
UPDATE, 2:40 PM: Ducks score! 21-17 Oregon, 14 minutes left in the third quarter.
UPDATE, 3:41 PM: D’oh!!!!!!! Washington State, having narrowed the lead to 21-20 just before the end of the third quarter, just scored two touchdowns in about five minutes (the second one on a bizarre near-interception tip-turned-catch), and the Cougars are now solidly in the driver’s seat, 32-21. (They failed to convert a two-point conversion the first time, and had the extra-point blocked the second time, hence the odd score.) The Trojans are now counting on a mighty Duck comeback. Less than eight minutes to go, two touchdowns (or a field goal and a touchdown-plus-two-points) needed. GO DUCKS! QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!
UPDATE, 3:58 PM: Dropped passes, bad blocking, missed field goals… doesn’t look good for the Ducks (or the Trojans). Washington State 32, Oregon 21, 3:07 to go.
